Emma Powers grew up in northern Virginia with her parents, sister, and three guinea pigs. She studied Cognitive Science at the University of Virginia and moved to Ireland after graduation. She currently splits her time between Chapel Hill and a small town in Montana, and feels lucky to be able to work from home. In her spare time, Emma likes to do crosswords, jigsaw puzzles, and read, read, read. Thank goodness she also rock climbs, or she might not leave the house as often as she should.
